......These testimonials are from past clients who when they began treatment were similar to caterpillars with their limited perspective and downtrodden body language. They were depressed and crawled through life with little hope and big problems making life the way they envisioned it.

When they terminated treatment they had undergone a metamorphosis in their thinking, behavior, view of themselves and their possibilities. Like the butterfly, they are now winged, empowered with a new perspective.

I am happy to report so many people I see in my practice, both young and old, are making new healthy choices for themselves and soaring on the winds of change.

"I really can't say enough about Shoshanna. After being laid-off, I went to Shoshanna to ensure that I was staying positive and motivated in my job search. It was a pretty scary time, given today’s economy, but Shoshanna helped me to remember all of my accomplishments and put my opportunities in perspective. With her guidance and support, I was able to project confidence and competence in my interviews instead of desperation. I was able to find a job – a job that I wanted, with higher pay – within one month of being laid-off. Yes, I worked extremely hard and had a solid work history, but having someone who is neutral to talk with and had strategies to help decrease stress and become more productive was invaluable. If I still lived in the area, I would still be seeing Shoshanna – she really is fantastic."

"It has been a wonderful experience working through my life's trials and tribulations with Shoshanna. I am enjoying life much more now! Shoshanna has helped me worked through various issues from workplace bullying to starting my own business. She gave me the tools to reinforce my value, focus on/work toward my goals and diminish negative thoughts. When you have to make a way out of no way, its great to work with a skilled clinician, like Shoshanna, who provides a warm and safe atmosphere for sharing the deepest of concerns. I highly recommend Shoshanna as a therapist and life coach. She can help you fall in love with you!"

“I had lost my grandson and mother within six months of each other. The shock of these losses threw me into a deep depression. Having Shoshanna’s expertise as a caring therapist was a God send.”

“ I've noticed such a change in my life since working with you.

I can look at every single day as a blessing, whether its rain or shine and I dont let those little things bother me anymore because at the end of the day I want happiness. Im also noticing all those things I wanted out of life. I'm taking every chance I get to try something new, go to a new place and meet new people and for this I'll forever be grateful!

Thank you soo much from the bottom of my heart, you literally changed my life..”

"Some people have to try lots of therapists before they find someone they click with and trust.  I was lucky to find Shoshanna at my first time in treatment.  I feel comfortable with her and would not miss a session for anything. I think she's the bomb.  I have met my goals of stopping smoking, have lost weight and feel really good about myself.”

“Today I feel free and take better care of myself. Shoshanna taught me how to bring balance into my busy lifestyle and stop the enmeshed relationships that drained me. For all who feel guilty when you give to yourself I would recommend therapy with Shoshanna. You too deserve new understanding about yourself so you can stop self defeating behaviors.”
 Gale N. Berkeley, CA


"Rather than sticking a diagnostic label on me, Shoshanna April has helped me acknowledge that I am just like everyone else in that I have self-inflicted limitations that keep me from achieving my goals. I recommend Shoshanna because she encourages breaking through those limitations and becoming free from the restrictions of self doubt."
 Kelly M. Richmond, CA

" Shoshanna April is the most excellent therapist. She is a supportive, heart centered, insightful and always makes me feel better about myself.  I can go into my session very depressed but feel better with a new perspective when I leave."
